I want this to be a vid.  
But I don't know for which fandom or which pairing.



"The Flag"

The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock.
He says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk
You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you?
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke.
You should know that by now,
when the chequered flag comes down,
no one no one no one has won the race.

The next night he's over and over and under
and after he's finished she lies there and wonders
just why does she need him and why does she stay here
and then in the darkness she'll quietly say Dear,
you've never really known that when the white flag is flown,
no one no one no one has won the war.

They're complicated people
leading complicated lives,
and he complicates their problems
by telling complicated lies
He tells her he's sorry, she tells him it's over,
he tells her he's sorry, she says over and over
You've never really known that when the white flag is flown,
no one no one no one has won the war.

There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go

The ribbons the ribbons the ribbons
The ribbons of the flag.

Wesley. It makes me think of Wesley.
The first verse with Angel, the second with Lilah...but that's just me. :)

Sad to say it screams Spuffy to me (I really wish it didn't - trying to wean self off the whole star cross'd lovers trip). Opening line's gotta be the phone call at the beginning of Smashed and it all goes from there...

I love that song. It is totally crying out for a vid, but finding the right fandom...that's another story.
